How This Millennial Afghan Woman Defied The Odds To Get Her Education COMMENTS
Wazhma Furmuli is only 27, but she’s lived several lives already. Born in Afghanistan in 1988, Furmuli was a child during the civil war that raged intermittently for more than three decades. She doesn’t remember much of it, except for when her family left.
